2017/18 was an exceptional year for Nottingham Trent University. So when it came to Clearing 2018, they wanted higher achievers, like themselves. NTU didn’t see Clearing as a last resort for students, but as a second choice to not settle when it comes to university. Breakups are hard so to help students let their original uni choice down gently, NTU reminded them that all they needed to say was ‘Sorry (not Sorry)’. Our bold, unapologetic campaign made noise across the country and as a result, NTU filled all of their Clearing places in just 4 days.

Heriot Watt was the first British University to establish a campus in Dubai and has gone from strength to strength. In 2019 it received a prestigious award from Forbes Magazine and was also given the highest accreditation by the KHDA. Their challenge was to tell this story to their staff, students, alumni and corporate partners. We decided to use the world’s tallest building to display an animation of one of the founders – James Watt – leaving his plinth in Edinburgh to come to Dubai on 26th November at precisely 8.23pm, the whole world tuned in to see James pick up the awards.
